A superbly composed and exposed photograph of this rather chilly snow and wind swept Pheasant, with wonderful detail and clarity.

I am a bit suspicious about that falling snow but nevertheless it is a most pleasing atmospheric capture.

I thought he was curled into a ball and was jumping around to keep warm - [ note to self - too much imagination - get real - he's only rung the bell and come round for a cup of tea WinkWinkWink]
Well captured - the snow makes his colours really stand out SmileSmile

Usually we see images of dogs in the snow - but this tops those I think. Wonderful winter wildlife scene.

Does it take sugar?
